Pls reply also to the list. Back to your question. We maintain a stable repository (pve) and a testing one (pvetest). You just need to adapt your /etc/apt/sources.list file to update a 1.8 with the latest pvetest packages. But as we already plan to release 1.9 tomorrow you can just grab the new ISO including latest and greatest (which will be available on www.proxmox.com<http://www.proxmox.com>).

I checked here ftp://download.proxmox.com/debian/dists/lenny/pvetest/binary-amd64/ and didn't see an ISO. Should we start with pve 1.8 ISO, install and install each of the most recent .deb files? I'm new to Linux and Proxmox, how do I go about making an ISO once everything is up to date?

Thank you.

Hi all,

We just released a new kernel to the pvetest repository. This one includes the long awaited stable OpenVZ patches for 2.6.32 and also support for KSM. Additionally, this kernel will also be used (more or less) for the upcoming 2.0 beta which is expected end of Q3.

Everybody is encouraged to test and give feedback before we move it to the stable repository (and name it Proxmox VE 1.9, also new ISO image).
